Selection of archival documents from the L&RS Special Collections

The Houses of the Oireachtas Library & Research Service (L&RS) is taking part in a social media campaign to launch Explore Your Archive 2018.

From 17 to 25 November the Oireachtas News Twitter account is posting the L&RS archive picks using the hashtag #explorearchives.

There are over 10,000 items in the L&RS Special Collections, dating from as far back as the 16th century. Most of the Special Collections have been digitised and are available for everyone to search and download using the online catalogue.

Explore Your Archive is a campaign delivered by the Archives and Records Association (UK & Ireland), with and on behalf of the archives and records sector, across the UK and Ireland.
